Botox could aid cancer fight says study
MONDAY 27 FEBRUARY 2006

Botulinum toxin, the 'face-freezing' Botox treatment usually associated
with cosmetic surgery, could play a role in fighting tumours, scientists
have suggested.

In experiments on mice, Belgian researchers found that injecting Botox
into tumours opened up the blood vessels feeding the cancer. This
allowed more effective delivery of treatment such as chemo- and ...more

Hhhhhhhhhhhhhhuhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh THAT SHOWS WHAT CAN HAPPEN IF U HEARD SOMETHING FROM HALF KNOWLEDGED SOURCES. I MEAN IT'S TRUE THAT THERE IS A RELATION BETWEEN BOTOX TREATMENT AND CANCER BUT NOT IN THE WAY U HEARD BUT IN THE CONTRARY THERE IS A RESEARCH GOING ON TO KNOW ..................... WHETHER ONE CAN CURE SOME CANCER CAUSING CELLS. AND IT HAS ALREADY BEEN GIVING POSITIVE RESULTS. SO DON'T AFRAID OF UNDERGOING BOTOX TREATMENT IF U ARE FINANCIALLY SOUND AND UNHAPPY WITH UR FACE BECAUSE THE TREATMENT NEEDS A LOT OF MAINTANANCE AFTERWARDS AS WELL.

For goodness sake!!! I wish some of the comments that have been left already would not include peoples personal opinions on Botox... it doesn\'t help answer this question! And also, leaving a comment like \"maybe or maybe not\" is a complete waste of everybodys time!
Now... taking out my own personal opinion regarding the use of Botox for cosmetic reasons, I\'d like to help answer this question factually and help those seeking a proper answer.
Firstly, as kindly mentioned by the individual below, (LALITKUMAR RANA ,) there has been some study to suggest that Botox can help tumours that are injected and then treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The tumours are frozen (paralysed) and then effectively shrunken. - Of course, there is still much to be learnt but so far it\'s looking good in helping with the treatment of cancer in the future.
Secondly, there has been no correlation in case studies to suggest that Botox can cause cancer. In a day and age where scientist are continuo ...more
